Endometriosis, Uterine Fibroids, and Estrogen Dominance

By: Tina Marcantel

Now, when we have a stage called "estrogen dominance"--estrogen proliferates tissue when it's dominant. Estrogen within itself is very good. I helps us with our brain tissue, our memory.

It helps us to think clearly, prevents "foggy brain" and all this other stuff. Estrogen in itself is very good--it's not bad. But when you have an estrogen dominance situation where the estrogen is very dominant over the progesterone, you're going to have all these symptoms and you're going to have a proliferation of tissue.

For instance, if a woman comes in with cysts on her ovaries or cysts in her breasts or she has fibroids on the inner uterine lining, or she has endometriosis-- these are all tissues that are being proliferated. They are increasing because she's got too much estrogen in her. Thus, we have a lot of increase in the amounts of hysterectomies because women are getting large fibroids and they're bleeding heavy, heavy, heavy, so they have anemia. I went through this myself, personally, in my forties. I had a lot of estrogen dominance but back then we didn't know exactly what to do. And so, I ended up having a hysterectomy because every time my period came I would bleed very heavily. And this is what's happening now in people in their forties.

Not everybody, but people with estrogen dominance, and so they eventually have to have a hysterectomy. That path can be made smoother. We are starting to get more and more women that are bringing their daughters now. It's so good to see--it's preventive medicine.
